Compounding allows a practitioner to prescribe and a pharmacist to prepare customized medication that is not available commercially, or to meet a specific patient need and improve compliance.

More Flexibility with regard to dosage strength and route of administration is another benefit of compounded products. Concentration can be changed, and flavoring can disguise an unpleasant taste.
